If there's no gum/varnish, all you need is to disassemble carb and wash with fresh gas or solvent. Especially check passage where gas hose attaches to carb and float needle or diaphragm needle. Also blow out all other passages with air.Don't know what type carb you have. Put a few 3/8" nuts in tank along with a little gas, shake gas tank with it removed from engine to break anything loose and rinse out w/ clean gas several times.

PS: NAPA sells a good carb cleaner. Either in spray can or large can suitable for soaking entire carb.
